OB/GYN Group Joins White Plains Hospital Physician Associates
Drs. Jacqueline Monaco-Bavaro, Nabil Khoury, Vincent D’Amico, Anthony Loiacono, and midwife Lucy Milne join the White Plains Hospital Family
White Plains Hospital recently welcomed Obstetrics & Gynecological Partners to their group of integrated physician practices as of July 1st. The practice is another member of White Plains Hospital Physician Associates, a recently formed division of the hospital aligning local physicians with Hospital services. This new venture enables physicians and White Plains Hospital to share information, promote growth, better utilize resources and expand quality care to its fullest potential.
“We extend a warm welcome to these four very skilled physicians and midwife into the White Plains Hospital family,” said Jon B. Schandler, President and CEO of White Plains Hospital. “Their combined talents and complementary approaches have a longstanding reputation of providing exceptional care to women in the greater Westchester community.”
The practice has been a pillar of quality OB and gynecological care in Westchester for several years, providing everything from routine OB-GYN screenings for women throughout their lifespan to managing complicated reproductive health issues. An estimated 650 babies are delivered by these physicians each year, many of whom after some form of high-risk pregnancy related to either maternal age, illness or other condition that requires additional monitoring. Low-risk pregnancy patients who desire a more holistic approach to childbirth often work with nurse midwife Lucy Milne under the oversight of the medical team. In addition to pregnancy, childbirth and routine follow-up care; the physicians in the group also have extensive expertise in infertility, pelvic rehabilitation and complex gynecological and robotic surgery.
“Patients these days have many options for their care, and we pride ourselves on ensuring that each woman has a personalized approach based on their own individual needs,” said Jacqueline Monaco-Bavaro, MD. “We find that our patients are very comfortable with us both as individuals and as a team, and value our approach to optimum obstetric and gynecological health.”
The physicians of Obstetrics & Gynecology Partners are all board certified, with offices located at 15 North Broadway in White Plains (914-328-8444) and at 141 South Central Avenue in Hartsdale (914-285-0530).
